Just Futzin' a Little

Hi Everyone! I was futzin' (playing around with) the Flores suaves set from SU's Celebrando Creatividad catalog and came up with this card. The flower is stamped in Riding Hood Red (I'm having a red fetish lately!) and sponged around the edges. The sentiment is from Holidays & Wishes and the little heart is from the new heart punch. I used the scalloped edge punch on the side of the Bella Rose designer series paper and tied the Riding Hood Red taffeta ribbon on the side.
Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Friday!!!

Good Morning!
This is the last of my class cards for January. I used the Love You Much stamp set, stamping the heart in Riding Hood Red and coloring the flowers with Pink Pirouette and a blender pen and touching the little circles with Riding Hood Red and a blender pen. After I put the card together, I used a two-way glue pen and put Dazzling Diamonds on the flowers. You can see just a little bit of sparkle (thanks to my glitter queens Kelli and Crystal!! You guys taught me well). The Happy Valentine's Day stamp is from Holidays and Wishes. I popped the focal piece with dimensionals. The little flowers are from Flight of the Butterfly (wasn't sure I liked it after I stamped it). :-D
Got to get ready to go to work. See you all next time!

Happy Birthday Card

Hello Stampers! (Don't I sound like Dawn Griffin?) LOL
Here's another card we recently did for my January class. I used the Textile embossing folder from Cuttlebug on the three white panels. The flowers are from Eastern Blooms and I colored the flowers with a Yoyo Yellow marker and the stem in Old Olive. I punched 3 flowers from the Trio Flower punch in Yoyo Yellow and adhered them with gold brads. The ribbon on the side is Old Olive Twill (okay, am I having a Senior Moment? I can't find it in the old catalog and I know it's from SU!). I popped the focal piece with dimensionals.
Thanks for taking a look. Leave me a comment and let me know what you think! Thanks!!!

Hi Everyone! Imagine two posts in one week!!! That's a miracle for me!!! LOL

Here's another card I recently did for my Denver class.

It's using the new Elegant Thank you stamp (I really want some more of those stamps on the last page -- what a deal!). The card also uses the square scallop punch. Punch four scallops in Riding Hood Red to make a mat for the thank you sentiment. The designer series paper is the yummy Raspberry Tart. I used Riding Hood Red cardstock and ink on this card, along with Kiwi Kiss. Really simple card.

Thanks for stopping by!

I am SUCH a Blog Slacker!!!

Hi Everyone!

I'm finally back and have to apologize for being such a blog slacker (I saw that somewhere and LOVED it!!!) :-D

Here is a card we made in one of my classes. I saw the quilt technique online and just had to do one.

It is so easy. Punch 12 pieces of designer series paper with the 1 1/4 inch square punch. Adhere the pieces to a 4 1/4 x 5 piece of Whisper White cardstock using two strips of snail per row, and then using the Top Note die for the Bigshot, putting the "quilt" face down on the die, cut out your die. The scallop behind the Thanks a Bunch is also a die from Sizzix. I popped the sentiment with dimensionals. Tie your ribbon before adhering to the card base.

Thanks for stopping by and I'm really planning on being better about blogging!!! :-D
